Generation Chickenhawk: the Unauthorized College Republican Convention Tour - On July 13, 2007, I visited Section 60 of Arlington National Cemetery, where the bodies of American soldiers killed in Iraq were freshly interred. Afterwards, I headed across the street to the Sheraton National Hotel, owned by right-wing Korean cult leader Sun Myung-Moon, to meet some of the war's most fervent supporters at the College Republican National Convention.

I'm all for guns, but this a bit much. - Help me out hereÖ I consider myself a liberal libertarian in my political leanings. I believe Americans have the right to own guns for hunting, personal defense or simply because they want to.

School Rankings - From my understanding that public schools in the state of Ohio are ranked by how well their students do on standardized tests. I've always heard that Elmhurst Elementary is one of the best ranked schools in Northwest Ohio. Is this antidotal or is there somewhere to get these rankings?

Circuit City is firing 3400 works and replacing them with cheaper labor - Wow, I saw this on a KOS diary and wanted to add some comments. Circuit City is firing 3400 works and replacing them with cheaper labor. I'm guessing that Ohio's Circuit City employees will be glade that minimum wage has gone up.

WSPD & Carty - I can't take much more of WSPD... Between Fred Lefebvre and Brian Wilson, 6 solid hours of "Carty Sucks" is really wearing thin. I don't like Carty...I've voted in every mayoral election for the last 16 years and I've always voted for the other guy; Independent, Republican and Democrat in that order.

Taxes in Toledo - I can't turn on the local radio station these days with out hearing that Toledo's taxes are so high that everyone is leaving... I'm certainly wish my taxes weren't as high as they were and I'd rather not pay any more then I am, but my friends and family who live in the suburbs all seem to pay higher property taxes then I do.

What are your thoughts on Westside Montessori? - I have a child at Westside Montessori. Iíve been very satisfied with the school so far and had planned on having them attend elementary school as well. Lately however Iíve been hearing some negative things about the elementary school.
